"For meritorious service as Officer-in-Charge of compilation and publication of Field Charts aboard a hydrographic and survey vessel, in connections with operations against the enemy Japanese in the South Pacific area, from January 1, 1943, to July 29, 1944. Exceptionally skilled in compiling field charts and tireless in training inexperienced personnel, Lieutenant Commander Jarman, in addition to his regular duties, courageously led advance survey parties into enemy held waters, obtaining information vital to the success of our subsequent operations on Choiseul, Treasury and Green Islands. By his initiative, able leadership and unwavering devotion to duty, he contributed to the success of our forces in the Solomon Islands, and his courageous conduct throughout was in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service."
